RSP dismisses General Secretary Dhakal

KATHMANDU: The Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) has dismissed party General Secretary Mukul Dhakal from his post.

A meeting of the party’s Central Committee today removed Dhakal from the party central member, spokesperson and General Secretary posts on the recommendation of the party’s Disciplinary Committee.

Acting spokesperson of the party Manish Jha said that the Central Committee unanimously dismissed Dhakal from his party post.  With this, Dhakal’s general membership of the party has been retained.

The meeting chaired by party President and Deputy Prime Minister Rabi Lamichhane has decided that Dhakal can appeal the Central Committee’s decision if he disagrees with it.

The RSP has constituted the party’s review committee under the convenorship of party joint general-secretary Bipin Acharya.

To the question whether it could be considered normal that the party’s general-secretary has to face action just for expressing his critical views within the party, party spokesperson Jha said, “Action has been taken against him (Dhakal) as he failed to show politically proper behaviour.”
